this is a ludicrous situation. i can think of a dozen men who are just longing to use my shower.

There were so many things I planned on posting about today, but things don't always go as planned. So, on a sleepy Sunday morning, I turned Audrey.


Charade is one of my favourite Audrey Hepburn films. With the electric presence of Audrey and Cary Grant, mystery, intrigue, and romance is in full swing.

The movie is set in Paris, as Audrey's character, Regina Lampert deals with the death of her husband. She is pursued by several men in search of money her husband had stolen. Deception and mystery fuel this thrilling and romantic film.

If all of that wasn't enough to make Charade fantastic, there is fashion to be considered! Audrey's classic elegance is on full display in this film. The bold and always stylish hats, sunglasses, scarves, and perfectly tailored jackets make every scene to die for!








What do you think of Charade? What is your favourite Audrey Hepburn movie?

  9. Incredible, you managed to find an Audrey Hepburn movie that I haven't seen! And we are talking about me, non the less than the person who owns an Audrey Hepburn movie box!! Thank you for the hint - I have to find this movie!
    My absolute favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's but Roman Holidays inspired me to move to Italy for a while so I owe a great deal to that movie! Audrey decorates some of the walls of our apartment and is truly a part of me!
    Thank you for leaving such a nice comment on my blog!

  16. I love Audrey and Cary Grant and Charade is so great, I'd say my favorite would have to be either Funny face or Breakfast at Tiffanys!
